Graffiti workshop for school principals

The North Zone Arts Cafe for Principals 2008 was held at St. James Power Station, a hip night entertainment venue. It is an assembly of all school pricipals and superintendents from the northern sector of Singapore. There were numerous activities and including a graffiti workshop by yours truly.
I gave the participants a briefing on what is graffiti, traced its origin, up to current trends and showed the positive side within the context of art education that can benefit their students. The debate between art and crime was of special interest to these experts. I was initially concerned that I may be faced with a sceptical audience. Turned out they are keen to understand current trends and the likings of young people. It was an enjoyable and educational hands-on session though they did not have time to produce a great piece.
